Colhurst House
Ranked #1 of 12 Mount Gambier B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 February 2012

Mnt Gambier was our first overnight stop on our road trip from Adelaide to Melbourne. It was a traditional B&b in a beautiful colonial house. We were a little disappointed not to meet the owner until the following morning so we were expected to let ourselves in and find our way round. Breakfast was served at well set tables. We had a 13 month old son with us and there was a high chair for him.

We left promptly for more driving but realized there were few other hotels/ B&b of this type in the area. Most were motel type accommodation. The town is a little dishevelled but there appeared to be plenty to do in the area for a longer stay.

Patti the owner vert kindly sent on a very precious couple of bears that my daughter left in her bed so thankfully we were reunited with them before our return to England.

This is an absolutely stunning house with enormous rooms and lots of antique furniture. It is set in lovely gardens and each room has a balcony. It is a short walk into the centre of Mt Gambier which has a number of 'must see' attractions. There were no other guests when we were there just before Christmas and we had the entire place to ourselves. Breakfast on this occasion was provided at the nearby Mt Gambier Hotel which apparently is owned by the same people as own Colhurst House. We only stayed overnight which was a shame really - but this place was a highlight for us. Our room was the 'White Room' and the room and the bed were luxuriously comfortable.

Colhurst House is centrally located, yet quiet and very private. The central city area of Mount Gambier is only a short walk away, so leaving the car behind for a day of wandering the city is on the list of things to do. It is very easy to navigate to the main attraction of the town - the volcanic lakes - from the residence. The beds are sooo comfortable, and the rooms of a generous size, The house offers a large lounge/drawing room for guests, and the breakfast provided is quite delicious. Well worth the tariff, and a home away from home for a few days.

Room Tip: The white room has views to two aspects over the CBD with balcony all around

My husband, myself and 16 year old daughter stayed at Colhurst house for one night this weekend just gone. What a lovely place, exceptionally clean and a very handy central location to town. Patty is very well organised and so warm, and inviting. We stayed in the "Black' room and our daughter stayed in the 'Blue" room and shared one bathroom, which is certainly Ok for just one night. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms a nice size. Excellent full breakfast in the morning and I liked how you could help yourself to nibbles and drinks and had full use of the lovely big lounge if you just wanted to sit and read and relax. We will definitely stay here on our next visit to Mt Gamber.
